About this title


An authoritative guide to understanding and navigating the hormonal changes and health issues women experience in midlife and beyond, from one of the leading medical experts in the field.

The physical changes that occur after forty are inevitable—and can be unnerving. Perimenopause and menopause affect every aspect of a woman's life—from sex and sleep to mood and mental clarity to weight and body temperature. While there are a number of resources available, many are confusing and contradictory. Dr. Tara Allmen, a board-certified gynecologist, North American Menopause Society (NAMS) certified menopause practitioner, and the recipient of the 2016 Castle Connolly Top Gynecologist in NYC, shares her expertise to help midlife women transform this challenging time into the best years of their life.

Written in her effervescent yet assured voice, Menopause Confidential provides cutting-edge information and practical advice on:

  • the symptoms and hormonal changes of perimenopause and menopause
  • the health risks associated with midlife—from clarifying the conflicting opinions about health screenings (How often should I get a mammogram and Pap test?) to serious medical conditions, such as osteoporosis and heart disease
  •  various remedies, both allopathic and natural, to improve symptoms and empower women to make individual choices
  • practical tips and reliable resources for living a healthy life 

As a Fifty-something herself, Dr. Allmen knows firsthand what women are going through, and shares stories of her own personal journey through the menopause transition. Women can’t turn back the clock, but they can take control of their health and flourish in midlife. Menopause Confidential inspires them to be informed, proactive, and reach for their greatest and healthiest selves.

From the Back Cover:

One of America’s leading experts in midlife women’s health, Dr. Tara Allmen, delivers a head-to-toe-and-everything-in-between guide to understanding and significantly improving the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Be forewarned. This is not your mother’s menopause book. It is the most up-to-date, scientifically accurate, and practical guide to navigating one of the most challenging times of your life.

For most of us, the midlife journey begins in our forties, when we start to notice the inevitable signs of aging. Who amongst us is prepared for all of the changes that our bodies will undergo? Too many of us arrive at this life-altering and mysterious journey without a clue. It’s no wonder that hitting the perimenopausal and menopausal years throws us for a loop. It doesn’t have to be all sweaty, sleepless nights; dispiriting weight gain; irritable moods; and diminished sex drive. Are you wondering if you will ever feel like your normal self again? Dr. Allmen’s answer is definitely, “Yes!”

Dr. Allmen writes, “I want you to start feeling and looking better right now and also make great choices for your health in the future. How often do you need to get a Pap? What about a mammogram and colonoscopy? How can you guard against heart disease, the number one killer of women in the United States? What is the secret to losing weight in midlife? Is hormone therapy something to consider? There is a lot of confusion out there. Even the stuff that is on target can be overwhelming. So do not throw up your hands in frustration and accept less than the best. You will feel like yourself again. Health is on the way!”

Menopause Confidential will address your questions and concerns with easy-to-understand information that is based on scientific evidence. Far more than just a compendium of advice for dealing with hot flashes and midlife muffin top, this book proves that midlife can be the beginning of the best years of your life.
